It's that time of year again to launch the annual Baby Bestiary Calendar! This year we’re featuring Canadian artist, April Prime, who was the supplemental artist for the Baby Bestiary and Dungeons and Doggies.

5th Annual Calendar

 We've been doing this since the inception of the Baby Bestiary, with each year featuring a new amazing artist. Doing this allows us to see the adorable through their eyes, experiment with new styles and interpretations of what Baby Bestiary means to that artist. And everyyear so we’ve had amazing pieces with amazing feedback from our community.

Features for 2019

This year we're launching a little late but we've had April start working on the pieces already and we're on track to finish the calendars on time!

  • Cover [to be decided]
  • Miyazaki tribute with the kitsune and/or kirin  
  • Owlbear cub in a berry patch  
  • Doggie pups with adventurer dogs in the background  
  • Baby mimic (on a jewelry table, showing its little teeth)  
  • Baby sphinx batting a potion bottle  
  • Wolpertinger kit, perhaps eating strawberries  
  • Elements playing  
  • Capricorn 
  • Pegasus foal
  • Cerberus Pup
  • Dragon turtle, hippocampus, sea lion in the ocean
  • Baku and Kirin traveling through the sea of dreams/astral sea

As you probably noticed, there are a few pieces that have yet to be decided upon. In the first two weeks of the Kickstarter we'll need your help with deciding what we do!

Dates for 2019

We try to promote and celebrate diversity, and thus in our calendar, we’re hoping to include dates that would be appreciated by our fan-base, including lesser-known cultural/religious holidays as well as some geeky need-to-knows :)  

<I’ll upload a graphic of all the dates soon>

A Baby Bestiary Christmas!!

If you're looking to pick up a copy of the Baby Bestiary for your fellow players, GMs, or for your geeky extended family, we made a pledge tier where we’ll deliver your calendar and the Baby Bestiary Collectors Edition (slipcase and both books), as well as shipping a calendar to them!

Stretch goals

For the past few years we've done magnets and they've worked out really well. This time, they'll be inserted in the calendars (in the same way they were supposed to last year). So, once we unlock the magnets, everyone who gets a print Baby Bestiary Calendar will benefit! 

$6000 - one magnet included with every calendar

$8000 - two magnets included with every calendar

International Shipping

At this point, I’ve been unable to find a great POD printer for the EU to reduce costs. That said, I have made backer tiers that provide x5 and x10 copies of the calendar available. The hope is that if you know a few others around you, you can together and we can consolidate the shipping all into one. 
     I am working on improving this and if there are any new developments, I will be sure to announce it.

Risks and challenges

Being our 6th calendar project and we've got this process down. We've also reduced and streamlined a lot of our clutter in order to provide you with your rewards more efficiently than before.

We are currently shipping out books for our remaining kickstarter projects, but these should have no impact on the calendar or it's fulfillment.
